Participants needed for hunger tolerance study – register now!

Published 05 June 2017

University of New England Associate Professor John Malouff recently tried to shed two kilograms so that he could get down to the weight target he had set for himself – 40 years ago!

In achieving his goal he found it useful to practice hunger tolerance in the evenings and occasionally at other times.

His experience led to the idea for the thesis of Psychology honours student Wendy Robertson.

Ms Robertson and A/Prof. Malouff want to test if they can help other people increase their hunger tolerance using an online intervention tool and they are looking for participants, 18 years and older, to join in the study.

You will need an internet connection and the study will take about 90 minutes over two weeks to complete.

This project has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee of the University of New England (Approval No. HE17-085, Valid to 12/05 /2018) and all identifying information will be kept confidential.
